I know the mod is not 100% accurate but I cannot for the life of me figure out where and how he penned with 144mm pen..

Sometimes I wonder if I'm just unlucky or bad at the game...

Could be a clientside bug, since the mod only shows what it showed on your client, which means server-vice, he could've hit you somewhere else.

Must've went into those "ear" weakspots. They are 60mm. A T-43 cannot pen any other part of the E75 TS frontally reliably with 194mm of pen.

If that is the case, then that is one hell of a discrepancy between client and server.

Maybe it was a high roll that penned the gun and still had enough pen left afterwards to hit the view ports or cheeks or something else.

Doesn't the gun absorb shells?

Getting penetrated through the gun is an old "bug" or something...

Had it years ago while grinding the Porsche Tiger.

Was rather upsetting at the time too, since the offender was a 15cm O-Ni firing AP, so it took a lot of hitpoints away. :(

Not if you have enough penetration left, same as with tracks and other kinds of spaced armor.

The Lowe turret has the same weakness. a small area around the barrel is super weak and pennable.

Not the full gun is hitbox, only the part behind the point where your shells leave from. The mod registers all hits on the gun, including the parts where for the shell there's just air.

Shot trap. Went through the gun hit the lower part of the very angled gun mantlet and bounced downwards into the hull roof thats about 80-100mm thick at that angle.

Weird coincidence, that these "traps" exist only on german tanks.

cant the gun bounce shells?

what if the shell hit the gun and bounced right into the ''eye'' as i like to call it. of the E-75 TS?

 

also. what about replay? instead of a mod picture we could see the scenario for ourselfs.

Are you serious? Never knew this. I was playing the O-Ni a while back and I got penetrated twice in the front by another O-Ni shooting AP out of his Howitzer. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how he had penetrated my front with 121 penetration...

Same thing happened to me with my Centurion 5/1 RAAC. Got hit in the gun lost HP, makes a lot of sense.

I was shot on my 50TP Proto on the lower portion of the mantlet.

The round rode it like a carrousel and simply entered the driver's hatch from above.

 

All of this while I was hulldown.


@Ontopic: the rangefinder "ears" are a weakspot.

Bonus points for who can ellucidate me on what "TS" stands for, without joking.

They exist on all tanks with slopes that can direct shots downward. US gun mantlets and Russki turrets are honestly the first that come to mind.
